I’m finally writing my book!
November is “national novel writing month” (check out NaNoWriMo they are a stellar literary nonprofit!) and I’m finally going to do it. I’m finally going to jump off the proverbial cliff, write more than just a few lines of poetry, and put down on paper this epic story that’s been living inside me for 28 years.
I’m tremendously excited and also terrified. I feel like this is it. If I can do this, if I can crank out a messy, error laden 50,000 word novel in the thirty days of November, which is my favorite month of the year, then I’ll finally have something and I can finally think of myself as a writer.
I’ve started sketching out my story/plot, which scares me and exhaust me and I’ve never done before, but I have a smile on my face the entire time because I know I’m doing what I love.
So if you see me in November, please, ask me if I’m writing. Help hold me accountable. Encourage me to keep trying, to be brave, and not to give up.
I’ll be keeping track of some big picture writing stuff each day here.
Here’s to writing, and to running blindly after your dreams.
